Woman Donates 8 Gallons Of Breast Milk To Harvey Survivors 

A mother in Missouri, Danielle Palmer of Owensville has helped out potentially hundreds of Texas children by donating 8 gallons (65 pints) of breast milk to Hurricane Harvey’s survivors.
She had an excess of bottled breast milk ready to serve up to her son, Truett – but when she saw the devastation in Texas she knew she had to help out other mothers.
She said:
‘We have each-other’s backs. We take care of each other,’
‘Breastfeeding is hard. Whether you’re pumping or feeding or however it may be, it’s hard. And we are like momma bears. We protect one another.’
She learned something about the difficulties of raising kids after her son, Truett was born with a congenital heart problem, among other difficulties
 meant he had to take most of his nutrition by IV – which led to Palmer’s freezer building up an impressive amount of excess milk in the meantime.
So when Truett’s speech therapist suggested donating some milk to the mothers and babies affected by the floods, Palmer realized they were asking the right woman.
She added:
‘With Truett’s heart defect, I don’t take that lightly but I also know I’m grateful for the situation God placed us in, It’s given us the opportunity to do other things, I mean had we not been in this situation, we wouldn’t be able to share some of our love with the babies in Houston.’
